The macOS test checks if the binary targets macOS 10.4 or earlier.  Those versions of macOS have been out of support for a very long time, and we haven't had installers targeting those versions of macOS for a long time as well.  2.7 and 3.5 had installers targeting macOS 10.5, current installers target macOS 10.9. 

IMHO macOS 10.4 has moved into museum territory and I wouldn't bother supporting it anymore.

Support for USE_GETADDRINFO_LOCK is only enabled for very old OS releases, the OS that stopped requiring this the latest is OpenBSD in 2013 (7 years ago). The other OSes stopped requiring this in code in 2007 (13 years ago).

I'd drop this code instead of fixing it.
